Has anyone defederated your instance? Introducing Defederation Investigator - eviltoast

cross-posted from: https://lemmy.basedcount.com/post/113726

I couldn’t find any tools to check this, so I built one myself.

This is a little site I built: the Defederation Investigator defed.xyz. With it, you can get a comprehensive view of which instances have blocked yours, as well as which ones you are federated with.

The tool is open source and available on GitHub. Hopefully someone will find it useful, enjoy.

      Lemmy devs may have controversial political views, but their software is written with a good intention. KiwiFarms on the other hand use it to target instances.

      Not just that, in all interactions with them, I’ve never found the devs to be anything but respectful.

        Well, that is partially because they leave the less respectful interactions to their alt-accounts ;)

        But yes, the software is written with good intentions.

      I haven’t heard of them. What are they about?

      I’m not sure how the developer’s intention or leaning affects me. Or how my usage or non-usage affects their intention or leaning, or how they can act on it. Maybe my usage provides data for them to improve their tools? But since the tools themselves are agnostic, I’m not sure how that’s a bad thing either.

      if there’s a good alternative with no such controversies

      Strictly speaking about functionality, I saw no alternative which is on par to the .agency tool. It has more features, is faster, provides more information and causes less strain on network servers. At least that’s my quick impression.

      Anyways, thanks for the conversation!

      Let’s go even further than that. Let’s say that the most annoying people around the whole Fediverse are Hexbear. On the worst days, all they do is to organize to spam specific threads, which is indeed annoying, but that’s the extent of it. KiwiFarms is responsible for harassing people until they commit suicide for the heinous crime of being weird. Anyone aware of this who wants to associate with them has no place in civilized society.
